Great island range hood ...BUT ...

By CP

from Central VA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 36" Convertible Island Mount Range Hood:

The design is gorgeous. The exhaust fan works really well and is whisper quiet in the low setting. We had the contractor vent it out through the roof ... no more recirculating fumes and grease for us! The lighting is really great too. Here's the problem: the sleeve parts that cover the frame of the exhaust pipe structure did not match and looked terrible. There were four pieces, two for the bottom and two for the top. The bottom two pieces were the light shiny SS and they fit together with a nice,tight, clean seam on two sides. The top two pieces were a darker stainless and the two seams were awful ... there is a 3/4" spline between the two sections that makes it look makeshift. My kitchen design company had their regional applicance representative come to see it. Pictures were sent to Whirlpool and they discussed the problem. Whirlpool said that was the way it was supposed to look! Fortunately my company agreed that it wasn't acceptable and a local architectural metal fabricator is making two pieces that will have the shiny SS with smooth seams, without splines. Thank goodness for a remodel company that wants me to have a lovely kitchen! Whirlpool should have remedied this for us but didn't. None of their pictures of this unit show the ugly, splined seams or the mismatched stainless steel.

Beautiful fixture. Looks just like the picture.

Comments about Whirlpool 36" Convertible Island Mount Range Hood:

I just installed this fan and lucky I am an electrician and luckier that I could re-engineer the mounting brackets to fit the fan to an eight foot ceiling- the instructions give not indication on reducing the height. Mounting the cover is not a one man job.

Beautiful design and quality

By Suz1967

from Spokane, WA, United States

Comments about Whirlpool 36" Convertible Island Mount Range Hood:

This is an elegant hood for our cooktop located in a free-standing island. It is powerful, and most importantly quiet, except for the highest speed. It mounts very solidly to the joists in the ceiling, with only a 6" hole for the ducting vent and a small one for the power wire. Attic access is important if you vent it through the roof. One recommendation is to mount the hood back away from the edge of the counter a bit so you don't bump your head on the glass. Installation instructions are minimal in this regard. Wish the halogen lamps had a dimmer to use as a mood light!

beware the seams

By DGVjr

from OH

Comments about Whirlpool 36" Convertible Island Mount Range Hood:

There are two large vertical seams that run on opposing sides 6" from the ceiling that do not show up in any picture or even installation document. They are conveniently cropped out of any image. They are ugly, unadvertised, and you can do nothing about them! They turn what is a handsome appliance into an eye sore.

      Whirlpool Gold? 36-inch Convertible Island-Mount 400-CFM Glass Canopy Hood is a beautiful style piece that receives many compliments as a design element in our kitchen remodel. An amazing amount or air can be moved and the lighting is great. simple controls. Extremely heavy and recommended for professional installation. difficult to keep clean at time given combined stainless and glass elements. Absolutely the nicest island style, stainless and glass hood available and worth the price as it preserves openness and accents the rest of the stainless kitchen. A celling trim around the duct would be a nice add. Thanks Whirlpool!

        This is real fine island hood, but it is a bear to install. The directions say it takes 2 to install, actually to hang it takes 3 people - 2 to hold it up and a 3rd to attach to ceiling bracket. There are no instructions how to attach the 4 SS panels! Not a hint!

              Comments about Whirlpool 36" Convertible Island Mount Range Hood:

              I researched Island Range Hoods for quite a while before making a purchase. I looked at many brands & price ranges. I felt safe purchasing Whirlpool because of their product reliability and reputation. Every one that walks into my "new" kitchen stops and gasps at the range hood, it is that beautiful! Then I demonstrate the light and different fan speeds, and they are amazed. The lights, 2, are bright enough to be used alone. I don't need any other light around the range. The entire cooktop area is bathed in bright light; but it doesn't create a glare to those around it. The fan has 3 speeds. I rated fan sound as good instead of excellent because on high voices would have to be raised a bit to have conversation standing right near the stove. However, I would rate fan effectiveness as excellent because the only time I can imagine using the fan on high is when cooking a dish that requires a high smoke temp and it would clear the smoke in a flash. I have cooked multiple dishes at the same time and never needed to use high speed because low and medium are so effective. I would highly recommend this range hood to anyone considering such an investment. Try Whirlpool before going with the other fancy brands or giant price tags. You won't be disappointed. I believe, like me, you will fall in love with your range hood!
